lady wanders airless house
walking stations of her cross
adoration
adoration
adoration
despair
Papa warned me
smell of calypso  
smooth of brown hand  
despair
soft of lips
adoration
despair
sound of voice
oh god

prie
mère sainte
peu de fleur
release me
tells her chapelet
crying knees

cotton skimpy
catches her neck
pulls
garrotes
she yanks
sails it across room

lady
prosterné

Poor Lady.  He is in her head -- and snaking through her body.  She can't lose him, can she.

he’s driving her mad aziza  
but I don’t think she will lose him  
he keeps coming back  
the snake...

there is something to be said
for missing the one you love Stranger
but I'm not sure what it is...
thank you

thank you LeeJ

almost makes me wish I spoke French too  
says she prayed to the Blessed Virgin
the little flower St. Theresa
prayed the Rosary
and prostrated herself
poor little thing...

parfois nous prions le plus dur pour ces choses non bonnes pour nous

But that certainly would not apply to our Charcoal man, now would it

Afterthought here. One of my favorite quotes by St. Theresa:

More tears are shed over prayers answered than those gone unanswered.

so true.

Yes
exactly Uriah
what an enigma…
thank you

so right Sandra
but she doesn’t know he is
not good for her

such is love…

afterthought…
thank you for the quote Sandra…
I love the saint of “Little Ways”
and her sweet wisdom
